US Currency on canvas and maple, 13" x 19" x 1"
I have been destroying currency for my work for several years. As a professional artist, I deduct my material expenditures as a tax write off. If I slice up a hundred dollars to make an image, or a thousand, or just five, I am taking it out of the IRS coffers. Imaging the weaponry that I’m not buying with those dollars is a reminder for me that a little creativity can be quite empowering.
